BURLINGTON, N.C. (WGHP) — Crews are still cleaning up the mess left behind two days after a crash at a Burlington apartment building.

On Saturday at 7:51 a.m., officers with the BPD responded to the area of Maple Avenue and Quintas Avenue when they were told about a crash involving two vehicles.

Officers determined that speed was a contributing factor for the crash.

Both drivers were juveniles, and they were taken to local hospitals and are listed in stable condition.

“I mean it was terrible,” said Cedric Butler, who witnessed the crash. “It was like an explosion…the whole wall on the apartment blew up. Bricks are flying every where. Bushes are flying everywhere.”

Officers believe the juveniles were racing based on witness statements and physical evidence.

Burlington Police believe the cars were going more than 90 mph.

“It was like smoke. I didn’t get any closer to it. No one was moving,” Butler said.

Both vehicles were considered to be a total loss.
